Review: This trail is well maintained and well marked. And marked for riding in both directions. So I did two runs, one in each direction. Nothing to difficult but enough of a challenge to make it worth the trip.

Review: While a newcomer to the wild, wonderful world of mountain biking, and bicycles in general, I can't speak a lot about comparing these trails to other trails that are out there. What I can say from the heart though is that from my perspective, as someone who dealt with a serious health crisis in early '16 and has since held fast to an ongoing commitment to getting healthy and fit, I consider Mountain Laurel Trails a God send and an integral part of my exercise regimen. I can come to this beautiful place -- and I do mean beautiful; it's like a little nature lover's dream here -- and ride for an hour (or two on a good day!) and have a lot of fun in the process. It is great, GREAT exercise for me. It's challenging and keeps my heart rate up, while giving me a solid overall workout that works pretty much everything from head to toe. The land owner who has made this magical place possible is Bob Norris, and it is evident in every way that he has put his heart into making these trails something truly special for all to enjoy. When you meet Bob, you know you are meeting a friend. He's a soft spoken gentleman who is very comfortable to be around and who makes you feel welcome, so please don't feel at all intimidated by the fact that these trail grounds are privately owned and maintained. There is no snob club here, believe me. Everyone who helps out here is great. Some good people have worked hard to make the place what it is and to keep it maintained; and it's amazing to see what all they've accomplished. As well, every rider I've encountered here has been very courteous, responsible, and a pleasure to interact with. These are great folks who ride up here. Without hesitation, I'd recommend Mountain Laurel Trails to anyone and everyone who has an interest in mountain biking, and if you're like me and primarily doing this for health reasons as well as for the fun of it, then I doubly recommend that you come and give MLT a try. And just so I can find SOMETHING to complain about, I'll mention that there is a little shrub out there in those woods that I banged my foot on and it hurt. So if you see it -- you'll recognize it, because it's an evil little shrubbery that jumps out of nowhere and attacks your foot as you pedal past -- then feel free to give it a piece of your mind on my behalf. So have fun at Mountain Laurel Trails! I know I do! Don't forget to show the owner some love and encouragement via the donation box on the sign post out front!

Review: Hidden gem!! You won't be disappointed making the effort to find this trail system. A mix of flow, rock gardens, bridges and S curves with well maintained berms and trails. Camping available and wicked friendly locals. Hit this place up!!

Review: Beautiful and very well-maintained trail system. Though it's a privately owned park rather a government one, there is no mandatory fee, just a request that you put a donation in the box. Do it! This place is great. Nice variety of scenery--woods, fields, and streams--and alternation of flow and climbing, so you can catch your breath. Not really many "features" (or "obstacles" as this intermediate rider would say) but some naturally rugged sections with lots of roots and rocks. (I didn't ride the expert trail, so I couldn't tell you what that's like.) The trail does often run by the creeks, sometimes unnervingly close, but really lovely. It's out in the country and there are also campsites by the trail. I will have to take advantage of those soon, maybe when the mountain laurel lining some sections is blooming....
